Baby Lexi is about eight weeks old! I can’t believe how fast time has flown by. I have heard parents say that times flies by and I would roll my eyes at that, but boy was I wrong. Time goes by really fast. We are so lucky that she is ours. I can’t imagine not having her. One huge thing that has happened in this eight weeks is that we found out that she does not have Dandy Walker Variant! We are so blessed and happy to have found out this news. She still has the chromosome deletion, but we are thankful we have one less health problem with our baby girl.
Lexi is still a petite little girl weighing at 7 pounds 11 ounces. She was 4 pounds 9 ounces when she was born so we are thrilled with this weight gain. When she was born all I had was newborn sized sleepers and those were so big on her so I had to find some preemie ones and I was shocked to find out how hard it was to find them. She still wears some preemie and she can fit into some newborn sizes while some are still a little big.
So far in her eight weeks of life she has had a G-Tube surgery, has become a total daddy’s girl, loves her doggy, hates bath time (screams at the top of her lungs), began OT and Speech, and sleeps through the night. The sleeping through the night is because she gets continuous feeds, but we are still thrilled with that.
I love this little girl so much and can’t wait to share more about her with you all. Now I hope you enjoy all the iPhone snaps of her!
